Welcome to RAC's Gallery
We’re open 6 days a week (the gallery is closed on Monday) and admission is free.
Drop by our light, airy first-floor gallery to explore stimulating high-quality art that changes each month.
During the course of a year we display diverse works in all media – acrylic, computer art, drawings, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, prints, sculpture and watercolor.
Our goal is to provide maximum exposure for the talents of RAC members. Six exhibitions include 40-80 works exclusively by RAC exhibiting members … all members and the public have the opportunity to be juried into three other exhibits … and the first exhibit each year features artwork by RAC instructors and students.
NEXT EXHIBITION RECEPTION:
The judge was Nancy McTague Stock, who selected the award winners from 41 photographs and 6 sculptures.
She said, “It is always a pleasure to judge an exhibition at the Rowayton Arts Center. Although awards could not be given to all, there were many worthy candidates. I was pleased to see experimentation in media and substrates, indicative of the RAC membership’s willingness to experiment.”
Other photographers and sculptors in the exhibition are (by town) Branford - Gaile Ramey; Darien - Joanna Bridges, Ben Larrabee, Pam Lindbert; Greenwich - Maria Friscia; New Rochell, NY - Evelyn Aponte; Norwalk - Bill Jones, Jeanne Castellucci, Lisa Wilson Grant, Dona Menton; Rowayton - Michael Boll, Dana Laird, Barbara Murphy, Rick Pank, Marilyn Parker, Jack Robson, Alan Sprules; Stamford - Sandy Gennrich, Judy Peknik; Westport - Tom Kretsch; Wilton - Amy Schott.
Exhibition judges and jurors are recruited from throughout the regional arts community -- professional artists, curators, gallery directors, academics and instructors. Award winners are announced during the free reception for each exhibit.
In addition to the exhibitions in our full gallery, we occasionally present special solo or small group shows in RAC’s Portside Gallery.
